Anyone here use a crockpot?

I recently purchased one but don't have much experience with it. Does anyone have any tried and true crockpot recipes that their whole family loves?

Thanks

yes they are great for leaving it in the morn and dinners ready by 5! I just google recipes a lot, and try different things, and then tweak them yourself...

One of our favorites is a lemon and herb chicken. The recipe is here: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008...d-chicken.html

You could also look through the thread that is stickied at the top of this forum about crockpot recipes. There's a lot of good ones in there, too!

Check out the sticky in this section. So many great recipes. I even love to just throw in some frozen meatballs with jarred sauce and let it simmer all day long. The meatballs are so tender and so good with spaghetti.

The sticky in this section has been my lifesaver this week! I have been trying to find ways to save on time since I've been overwhelmed lately. The crockpot has probably been my biggest helper!!

I'm a FT WOHM so I know what you mean. We recently moved to another state and now I commute half an hour each way (not too bad, actually) but that 1 hour I lose a day results in less time to prep meals from scratch.

I typically use my crockpot once a week on the days when everyone's schedule is different (normally Wednesday and/or Saturday). I like just putting some chicken in with some BBQ sauce and cooking on low for 5 hours. I make roasts, chicken and rice, sauces too but drumsticks or chicken breasts are my go to.
